Return to the League of Evil

League of Evil 2 is the sequel to one of the hardest platform games in the iTunes App Store.

League of Evil 2 is the sequel to one of the hardest platform games in the iTunes App Store. The 8-bit graphics found in the first game are gone this time around; they're replaced with much smoother graphical style that doesn't detract from the difficult gameplay. Taking queues from superhard games like Super Meat Boy for computers and consoles, League of Evil 2 is the type of game that has you trying to complete levels countless times to grab an item and get to the goal in the shortest amount of time. Like the first game, you're rated on how fast you can complete the level (by killing the evil scientist) and whether you grab the bonus suitcase (often in an area that's difficult to reach). You get plenty of content, with more than 100 levels across five different environments.

League of Evil 2 is not for the beginning gamer and is better suited for veterans of difficult platform games. You'll need to perform double jumps, wall jumps, and more, and you'll have to time them perfectly in some instances to avoid death. Death comes easily in the League of Evil games, so even if you're a master gamer, your success may come down to your patience with starting a level over again and again. If the game wasn't hard enough as it is, League of Evil 2 also features boss battles to really put your gaming skills to the test. In other words, the frustration level for this game is high.

Still, with a reworked graphical style, tons of new levels to explore (and die in), and rock-solid controls, this is a tough game to beat if you like difficult platformers. Any fan of Super Meat Boy or other games that push your hand-eye coordination to the limits will love this game.
